Early Lehocky

An early Ron Lehocky heart for 2020's V-Day on PolymerClayDaily.com

I went way back into PCD archives to pick out my 2020 Ron Lehocky valentine.

This is an early Ron though I’m not sure what year. Maybe he can tell us.

The background dots are black on color. They frame the dimensional heart whose dots reverse to color on black. It’s loose and carefree, probably from before he set his goal of 50,000 hearts.

Ron can make beautiful hearts in his sleep now. This playful version still sings.

Ron will probably reach his goal this year. That’s $500,000 raised for his Kids Center Heart Pin Project. Who better to feature on this day of love?

Makes your heart flutter

 Lorraine Vogel makes your heart flutter on PolymerClayDaily

Florida’s Lorraine Vogel (wiredorchid) makes your heart flutter with her newest series of hearts on Flickr. They’re stamped and painted and have the look of enamels.

She captures flowers and butterflies and other designs within the heart shapes and with a beach-meets-boho style. Here she is on Instagram.

This Saturday’s StudioMojo suggests that you let your weird light shine brighter. We take a look at how polymer art has gotten edgier. Join us at StudioMojo.org

Monday bouquet

Floren Jewelry sends you a mini Monday bouquet on PolymerClayDaily.com

Nothing like a dozen red roses for your Monday. This small pendant was created by Belarus’ Floren (JewelryFloren).

The pendant measures 1.6″ x 1.4″ and is made from an air-dry polymer. You can imagine how lovingly this delicate bouquet was assembled on its metal backing.

While Floren doesn’t reveal much about herself online, she’s surely a romantic.

Parade of hearts

Anarina Anar draws and shades her hearts in surprising colors on PolymerClayDaily

It’s nearly February and time for the valentine parade to begin. Greece’s Anarina Anar leads us off with a new necklace.

Her hearts are assembled from several shapes, made of light clay shaded with pencils or inks. A black backing also serves to outline her bright colors. A bit of texture and some teardrop elements make hers an unusual treatment.

The hand-drawn colors and changing shapes keep your eye skittering around this gathering of hearts. You’ll find them on Etsy and Instagram.

Lo-cal polymer

France’s Stephanie Kilgast places tiny polymer chocolate pralines into a 3/4″ heart box for part of her valentine’s offering. Light on calories and heavy on charm.

Stephanie’s miniatures can be found on her Etsy shop and Facebook. On her blog she reveals her latest creations, miniature coral reefs that she transforms into jewelry.

This new art, she says, makes her happy. What a pleasure to have these small reminders of important times and places. Stephanie shares some free tutorials on her site.
